Helps regulate hormonal activity *
The World Health Organization defines endocrine disruptors as « substances or a mixture of substances that alter the functions of the endocrine system and thereby induce adverse effects in an intact organism and its offspring ».
Present in almost all of our consumer products: cosmetics, household products, food packaging, toys … our exposure to endocrine disruptors at high concentrations is permanent.
By their action « »hormone-like » », that is to say by mimicking and / or blocking and / or interfering with the action of hormones, endocrine disruptors induce a hormonal balance, which can ultimately lead to the development of many pathologies .
During the embryonic, fetal, childhood and puberty periods, where organs are in development and subject to hormone regulation, limiting exposure to endocrine disruptors is essential.
